25 Jun – "Black", the hit series from streaming service VIU, is now back with its Season 2 with lead stars Kamal Adli and Siti Saleha.
The series, which is an adaptation of the renowned CJ ENM Korean fantasy-thriller of the same name, premieres its second season on 25 June, bringing back its season 1 stars like Kamal Adli, Siti Saleha, Nabila Huda and Zoey Rahman.
The first season, which was released in December 2019, stars Kamal Adli as Black, a supernatural law enforcer who comes to earth in search of his rogue partner, and meets Sofia (played by Siti Saleha), a gifted but troubled young lady who has the power to foresee death.
The pair teams up only to uncover a series of mysteries connected to their loved ones and their own shared past.
Kamal and Siti Saleha have been dropping hints to their fans on their social media on the continuation of the plot, following the shocking cliffhanger at the end of Season 1. Audiences will now be able to watch the continuation of the story in season 2, as Black intensifies his hunt for his fugitive partner, with his investigations leading back to a number of unsolved murder cases, including his own.
Ms. Sahana Kamath, Head of Original Production for Viu Malaysia and Indonesia, said, "Remaking a much-loved Korean title was a calculated risk for us that more than paid off, with Season 1 garnering critical acclaim and ranking amongst the 10 most-watched series on the platform in Malaysia. Expectations are high, and the concluding 10-episodes of the series will not disappoint. Packed with romance, revelations and high-octane fight sequences, Season 2 exemplifies the new gold standard for premium drama that we have defined for the region."
The eight-episode series enabled Viu to win two awards at the Asian Academy Creative Awards for Best Cinematography and Best Visual FX.
